The South Australian government works with industry and the renewable energy sector to provide up-to-date information to support investment in South Australia.
If you’re looking for a suitable site for your project, you may wish to examine low-resolution maps that show land, climate and utility characteristics such as water quality, rainfall, soil capability and gas, power and water pipelines. These maps can be obtained from Primary Industries and Regions SA.
The government also has up-to-date spatial data in geographic information system (GIS) format that shows detail such as property boundaries, infrastructure services (electricity, road and rail), land elevation, local council boundaries, planning zones, natural resources and public land.
Other data that could affect your site decision – such as the location of threatened fauna and flora, historical land contamination, native title, and Aboriginal and European heritage sites – is captured in Enviro Data SA, which is maintained by the Department for Environment and Water.
